Now, I am unfamiliar with First State, but their "As You Were" production really making me want to discover more of their work, so they are under my radar for now, excellent work!
Extended version of original is without doubt the best version of remixes eventhough only one other mix by Ben Nicky is available at this time on Youtube! Now, I don't really like the intro of extend remix as much since it is just some random beats and sound effects, so I do the honor of jump to the midtro part where mood, vibe and synth starting to make sense to the feeling of uplift and memorizing by the dwelling timespace motion lift of epic transitions! This is part that is making this mix so worthy of my recommendation, the epicness of synth lift and melody groove are just way to timeless! However, I also don't like the way it fading into its closing with an abrupt drops to the synchronicity of its intro, but overall I really enjoy the experience!
Ben Nicky remix has slightly better overall beat transitions from start to end, and its superb melody lifts are just as great versus extended remix. Totally different feel to it as it has soothing background vocal to boost so it definitely stands out on its own and definitely another one of my top favorite trance remix!
